More details of the Cablevision vs. Viacom lawsuit (previous): Carriage fees are the main issue as Cablevision (CVC) says Viacom (VIA) tried to tack on a $1B penalty for the company not carrying all 22 of its cable networks in a large bundle. Viacom dispute the calculations on the $1B saying it's "rhetorical math manufactured to create artificial sticker shock." The bigger issue: Can cable companies break out of the forced bundled model to pave the way for a la carte pricing?
